03844: Damaris is converted to a fierce pirate babe :D

Most hats have feathers on the left side. Women's hats sometimes have the button and feathers on the right side. Since she's a pirate, she probably doesn't care about seeming lady-like, so the feathers would be on the left. If you want to go with hat-fashion stuff that is :poke:

 

I meant more like a, "would the hat look better balanced with left or right feathers" but I absolutely love that you keep popping in here with super technical trivia. :lol:

You sculpted the bend in the hat on the left side too, so the left will match with feathers better anyway (in my opinion at least) ::D:

I actually finished her a couple days ago. I primed her yesterday , completely goofed it up, tried to fix the primer but it didn't want to come off even with a toothbrush, aaaaaand her arm fell off again.

 

... So I guess I'll try to pin her again this weekend, and when I paint the back I'll just be careful to do thin glazes. :<

No ... how could her arm fall off again ? Dose she have leprosy ? Drill a lil deeper and use a bigger pin , she is too awsome a convention to let "just a flesh wound" hold up the show !

Alright, fine! I already sculpted your pistol, I can sculpt it again and your new hand too!

Fight me. 

 

Left: old hand and new giant pin on which I'll sculpt the new hand.

Right: RIP, pooled up primer that I tried to scrub off.

Sorry to hear about the arm troubles, but I'm sure you'll win in the end, she looks pretty cool already.

 

If you have access to a wire brush, that should take care of the primer you want gone.

Ooh, really? I thought it would scratch up the pewter too. I was fairly gentle with the toothbrush since I had little converted parts everywhere that I didn't want to accidentally scrub off.

 I used to use ' mean green ' to soften paint when I had to clean up a house painting oops ... put a little on for 3 - 5 min and pick out with a toothpick ... it get paint soft and dose not mark metal ...

You're going to want to be gentle with the wire brush, too. If you'v already had the figure in some kind of stripper to get the paint off, it ought to be loose enough that you don't have to scrub to hard with the wire brush.

Yep, simple green is what I normally use. But with my little conversions on it, I was hesitant to scrub or add anything crazy. I'll sculpt the hand and pistol tomorrow.

Seriously, if this arm manages to fall off, she's just getting a robotic arm or something. The silver pin that will form the gun goes all the way through to her shoulder! It shouldn't go anywhere! :lol: 

 

First I sculpted the cuff of her glove, then the pistol stock and three of her fingers. I had just enough putty to add her thumb over that. I meant to go back and sharpen up the glove cuff once it had started to set to get a sharper edge, but I forgot. So I kinda just.... shaved off the dull ends a bit.

 

Then I used a bit of super glue to add a bit more wire for the barrel. I might make the barrel slightly bigger once I sculpt the firearm - I didn't have a better size available and I'm ready to get painting!

      I finished my Damaris Walmund, Duskwarden, yesterday. I painted her to look Elf-like, since she will be joining my Ghost Archipelago all-Elf crew in the role of a Hunter. I'm really pleased with this one; it's about as good as I can manage.
         The jacket is Folk Art Color Shift paint, which turned out pretty neat as a pearly metallic, but I don't see much color shifting in it.    I tried for a strawberry blond on the hair, but it ended up going more pinkish; not that that's a bad thing. 
         Her face was a challenge, particularly the way the vest collar partially obscures part of the mouth and the hair partially overhangs the eyes.  For some reason painting parts of things is harder than painting the whole...   And I noticed in the photos that here's a little bleb of dark paint over her left eye.  Oh, well, consider it a birthmark, as I am not going back in and repairing it at this point and risk messing up the whole thing! 
       
      On the base, I attempted to blend her integral cobbled base into a grassy surrounding by adding some loose cobbles around it, cut from a bit of Bones sprue, as if it was part of some ruined floor for path and slowly breaking apart.

      Hey all! This thread will be about my sculpting journey. I hope that by showing the time and effort it takes it pursue an art, others would be excited about trying it without getting discouraged by the climb up. I plan on posting daily here - I might as well continue my daily art streak!
       
      Some days might have some cool stuff, but many will probably be like, "Oh man. I sculpted a lot of fur today. A. Lot."
      Anyways. Hopefully y'all will get some enjoyment out of it. Here's to day 1 (tomorrow)!
       
      Comments and praise are appreciated, but please give critiques too!

      Damaris Walmund, Duskwarden.  Another project brought back from my shelf of shame.  I originally started painting her as a 'genasi' for the Princes of the Apocalypse campaign for D&D, but after I got done the blue skin I couldn't figure out what colours to paint the rest of her.  I think that is one of the main reasons I end up not finishing miniatures -- I can't picture what they are going to look like finished so I'm can't figure out what step to take next.  However, I just got the violet red triad in the mail, so I had to give the paint a try on something.  Here she is, ready to take on her enemies (aka the PC's in my D&D game).  Comments and criticism are welcome as always.

      Presenting Jakob Knochengard - Zombie Slayer, the first finished mini from my Dreadmere Begins WIP thread.
       
      I've been really taken with the minis Reaper have been producing for their Dreadmere setting, hopefully a few more of the ones they're doing for Bones 4 get released in metal.
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      Hello art family! Y'all might remember my 2016 thread, where I focused on making a habit of drawing every day. 2017 was wild and I decided against a thread here, but I have continued that art streak through this year with a slight change - painting and sculpting was allowed to sustain that miniatures habit.  
       
      I'm getting a bit of a headstart with my 2018 thread! I'd love to learn some fancy traditional art school basics, and I think a lot of these things transfer over to most any type of art, like mini painting and sculpting.
      I see lots of friends here talking about color, lighting, and MORE CONTRAST, and I think we should check those cool things out!
       
      When I start a new subject, I will list (but not link) books, websites, or other references so you can follow along if you'd like.
